Is it just me?


There’s no doubt that Oakland police used too much force to break up the Occupy demonstration in the city overnight.
Firing flash grenades, bean bags and tear gas is heavy handed.
But how real are some of these protestors? Just returned from Occupy Los Angeles and it seems to me most are the usual rent-a-crowd that appear at any protest.
Yes there are a few people who genuinely lost their jobs or homes or both.
Their anger is understandable and I commend them for making a stand.
But I fear their legitimate cause is being hijacked.
